School Visit

I was very lucky in this past week to get the opportunity to visit with a few third and fourth graders at Seffner Elementary!! It was a wonderful experience to read the books I illustrated and share the illustration process with them. A truly inspiring feeling to be surrounded by enthusiastic and creative kids. I hope that they were all motivated to continue reading as well as writing and illustrating their own stories. :) A big Thank You to all the students and their teachers for having me!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

"Step with care and great tact
And remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft
And never mix up your right foot with your left."

Today's post is in honor of the wonderful and timeless Theodor Seuss Geisel best known as Dr. Seuss. An amazing writer, poet, and cartoonist whoes work continues to inspire artists and writers of all ages!!
